Woman's body found in trunk of a car in Aloha

BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) -- The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a homicide after a woman's body was found in the trunk of a car in Aloha Thursday night. 

WCSO spokesperson Deputy Jeff Talbot said 28-year-old Sara Zghoul's body was found near SW Sarala Street and SW Hargis Road in a neighborhood between Aloha and the Cooper Mountain area.

The sheriff's office said a suspect was found near SW Murray Blvd. and SW Teal Blvd. He was taken to the hospital with self-inflicted injuries and is in police custody. 

Detectives are working in conjunction with the Major Crimes Team and the Washington County District Attorney’s Office on the case. 

Loved ones are mourning the young mother, who was an aspiring model and actress. She leaves behind a young son who meant everything to her. 

"You never would expect that to happen to someone that you know," Zghoul's childhood friend Gregory McKelvey told KOIN 6 News. "She was a very funny person, everybody knew her and her whole family."

McKelvey said the teens growing up in their neighborhood formed a tight-knit group throughout high school.
